Roof Garden, Westminster, SW1
Award winning conversion of a roof overlooking the Thames
Project completed 2010
We were instructed by the managing agents of Milbank Court to prepare designs and obtain planning consent for a roof terrace to this prime apartment block within the Grade 2 Listed Milbank Estate on the bank of the River Thames. The building forms part of The Crown Estate and comprises 80 self contained apartments over 7 floors.
The flat roof was unused with only a plant room and stair access. We obtained planning consent from Westminster City Council and worked with the managing agent to develop a detailed design that not only provided a lovely sitting area, but also incorporated thermal insulation, to the benefit of the apartments immediately below.
The development was awarded the 2010 ‘London’s Green Corners’ award by The Conservation Foundation (www.conservationfoundation.co.uk).
